Fatima Bhutto still seeks justice for her father's murder


Fatima Bhutto was born into a family dynasty steeped in politics and power. Her grandfather, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, was Pakistan's former prime minister. He was hanged more than 30 years ago and tragedy has stalked the family since.

Her father, Murtaza, was murdered in 1996 and her uncle, Shanawaz, died in mysterious circumstances. Her aunt, the former Pakistani Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, was also later assassinated in 2007.

All the men accused of Murtaza Bhutto's murder have been acquitted.

Fatima Bhutto tells Stephen Sackur why she thinks her aunt was involved in her father's murder, despite Benazir's denials.

This programme was first broadcast on Thursday 29 April 2010.
